Called a buddy of mine this morning, and he was in the middle of a problem he hadn't faced as of yet in his first year of "full timing". He was using a new mower as a demo this morning ... I believe he told me it was a Hustler mower. Though he has, and is looking to buy another eXmark ... he went to school (years ago) with the dealer. Anyway ... he was telling me that it blew a hydraulic line, and he had a trail on the driveway and across the lawn. At the time I called him, he was saturating the area with water, and had already called the dealer to come out to the job site. Have any of you ever had an experience such as this ... and what did you do ... and what was the outcome. He has a eXmark WB, and a 60" Convertible now. He is selling the Convertible, and I think he is going to go ahead and buy the 60" eXmark. Hustler Mowers --> ( http://www.hustlerturfequipment.com ) .
